Alice Cooper and his band to become holograms for a huge event next month.
The surviving members of the original Alice Cooper Band will be "reunited" onstage as part of an extraordinary event which will see the band turned into holograms for a show at the Battersea Power Station on 11 May.
The "Jgermeister Ice Cold Event" is set to make history as the U.K.'s first holographic 4D rock gig and will celebrate the release of the new Alice Cooper box set "Old School: 1964-1974". Featuring original band members Alice Cooper, Dennis Dunaway, Neal Smith and Michael Bruce, plus Steve Hunter standing-in for the late Glen Buxton, the "Jgermeister Ice Cold Event" will be the first time the group has "appeared" together in the U.K. since 1972.
"We couldn't resist this", says Alice. "Working with Jgermeister to appear as holograms on the other side of the Atlantic is the ultimate experience, a cutting-edge conjuring trick that celebrates the future and our history. We can't wait to see the results."
Of course, this isn't the first time Alice has dabbled with holographic technology. In March 1973, Alice was the subject of the world's first 3D hologram piece of art, created by the surrealist (and Alice fan) Salvador Dali. An admirer of the band's shock tactics, Dali immortalized Alice as a hologram.
